Eating seasonally brings benefits to our health, the planet aaand... our wallet.
Eating fruits and veggies when they’re in-season means they’re fresher (i.e., haven’t been shipped across country and left to wilt in a supermarket bin for days), which in turns means more flavor.
Food transportation, greenhouse gas emissions, pesticides and herbicides, and declining nutritional value of fruits and vegetables are can be reduced by eating seasonally.
Eating foods that are in-season is actually cheaper for you — one of those a-ha moments that you might overlook when throwing eight frozen pizzas in your cart (been there, girl). Buying food at the peak of its supply is cheaper for farmers and for distribution, making it cost less for you.
Bonus: seasonal eating supports local farmers, which helps your local community grow and flourish. It’s nice to know that whipping up some kale chips will make your body and the growers down the road happy. That kale tastes a little bit better now, doesn’t it?
